Cas walked out of the cottage a smile on her face the night was cool but not cold, and the sky was clear, it was the perfect for a night wedding. She smiled as she saw Levi rubbing her head against the twins hands.

Kjay walked over to Levi and licked her. Hopper still being young started bouncing around. Kjay looked at him and growled gently. He had been trying to teach Hopper how to express himself without getting over excited. ~Calm down young one, there will be plenty of time to play later.~

Hopper looked at Kjay and put his head down.~I'm sorry. I'll try harder.~ He rubbed his head against the twins hand like Levi.

Cas just looked at the exchange and smiled. Then she looked at the twins and knelt down to hug them. They looked so grown up.




"You two look great. Now lets get going."

She stood up and headed for the waterfall. The twins followed after her. Kjay was walking by her side. Levi was walking beside Nat and Hopper was walking beside DJ trying very hard to contain himself.

As they got closer to the waterfall Cas could smell the Queen of the Night orchids. They smelled wonderful. She smiled and kept walking. It was not much longer before she heard the people talking. She looked back at the twins and smiled.

Ivan saw Cas as she came around the trees and into the clearing. The moon was shining just right reflecting off her hair. She was stunning tonight. He walked over to her and held out his arm. "May I escort you to your seat?" He was looking down at her with a smile.



Cas looked up at him and smiled as she put her hand in the crook of his arm.

"Hello Ivan."

DJ held his arm out for Natalie and followed his mom and Ivan. Natalie took her brother's arm and followed everyone.

All three animals went off to the grooms side and lay down by the potted orchids.

After Ivan seated Casie he bent over and kissed her cheek before he walked back to his place in case more guests arrived.

Another social event, even more people ...

Ailylaeli was still having trouble with social gatherings. But she had been hanging out with Cad a lot over the months since the St. Patrick's Day party. Not that it was doing a lot for her socializing skills. He was a bit of a shut in himself lately.

But when he got the invitation to come to this wedding, he wasn't going to miss it. And he wanted to bring a date. So here was Ail, going to a wedding for people she had barely met. But she would be fine, from what she knew, these were good people.

But it was still another social gathering.

So when the rented carriage pulled up in front of the Inn, Ail was taken aback by how huge it was. It was almost like a castle. She hadn't been expecting that. She waited for help out before she headed towards the garden's on Cad's arm.

When they got to the wedding, or where the wedding was being held, William escorted them to their seats. The chose to sit on the grooms side because it looked like they were trying to keep it evened out. She took her seat and clung to Cad's arm.

Another social event, and it was so far so good.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Post by Alicia "Ali" Masterson on Sun Oct 18, 2009 9:25 pm

It took Alicia a little longer than usual to get ready. She wanted to make sure she looked her best. The only problem was that her shoes weren't an exact match to her dress. They had died them the wrong shade and delivered them late. So she was just going to have to make do. No one would be looking at her feet anyway, right?

When she headed out of her room, she didn't see anyone in the hall. She figured that the others on the floor were either already there, or were going to be on their way. She had seen the invite hanging from Mael's door a few days before. She wondered if he was going to go too. He had to be one of the quietest neighbors she had ever had.

She headed out to the gardens and through all the beauty that the night had to offer. She was impressed with how lovely it all was. She made note to spend some more time out here at some point. She saw the gathering off in the distance and headed that direction. She was rather close before her plain human hearing picked up the sounds of the water.

When she came upon the mass of men in matching tuxedos She smiled. "Evening Gentlemen. Groom's side please." She saw that there were more people on the brides side, and she barely knew either yet, so it was all good no matter where she sat. Paul walked her to her seat and then returned to the group in the back. Ali quietly waited.

Ail had been spending most of her time with Cad as of late, so of course he invited her to be his guest. They were great friends. And Cad hadn't even tried anything with her either. Not even on those nights that she slept in his room. Of course, they were hardly ever at the Inn anymore other than to sleep.

Ail had quit working for the Tel'Ranaemyn when she was sick more than she was well. She was missing so much work from her stomach problems and her constant colds and flus. So Cad had just been taking care of her when she was sick, and taking her out for good times when she was up for it. What else was a guy to do.

When he got the invitation to the wedding, he didn't think twice about asking her to be his date. It just seemed like she should be. He was quite happy when she said yes. So they headed to that dress shop in town and he bought her something she loved. The two of them had talked about a movie from Earth called the Wizard of Oz. And so he bought her ruby slippers to go with her dress. He picked himself up a new tux as well.

The day of the big event he had a hell of a time procuring a rented carriage. But he didn't want to take the one for the Inn, he wanted it to be there in case someone needed it for something. But he found a black one with blue interior. It was rather plain, and actually quite reasonably priced. Which was a good thing, because he wasn't trying to go broke paying for it.

They took the rented carriage to the other Inn and Cad was just as impressed as Ail at the size of the place. It was definitely more than he had expected. He was going to have to talk with her later. He thought that she might like it better here, and he figured he would too. If she agreed, he would check them out and move them over when they got back to the other Inn.

They made their way through the gardens and over to where the waterfall was. Cad smiled as he looked at all the beautiful decorations. The potted plants that were along the outside of the seats smelt very nice too. And there were more of them planted around the pool at the base of the waterfall. He hadn't figured Seleen for the flowers and waterfalls type. But he'd been wrong about women before.

William took them to their seats and he sat down with Ail. He was a little caught off guard that she clung to his arm so quickly. She redefined shy sometimes. He chuckled for a moment before he took her hand in his and tried to calm her down. They talked quietly together while they waited for the ceremony to begin.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Post by Catrina "Cat" Masterson on Mon Oct 19, 2009 12:17 am

Cat left her room with Penelope right beside her. She was trying very hard to not rush on her way. She even took the elevator. It would suck to take a spill on the stairs again. Though with her luck, maybe she should start repelling down the side of the building from her balcony. She was a lot more coordinated when she did stuff like that.

But she made it down to the first floor and out the door without problem. She even got outside safely. She smiled down at Pen, who was wearing a diamond studded black leather collar. She only wore collars for special occasions. And they both thought that Cat was home free as far as accidents go. But then she stepped off the cement.

The moment that her foot hit the ground, her ankle twisted and she almost went down. She chuckled as she caught her balance and started to head out to the waterfalls. That was a close call, but she didn't think she had done any permanent damage. She walked on her toes all the way so her heels wouldn't sink into the grown below.

When she got out there, she saw that Ali had beat her. As usual. She smiled as she laced her arm through Jorge's arm, after all, he was closest. "Same row as my sister, but on the brides side if you don't mind please sweety?" She walked with him to her seat as Pen joined the other animals over on the grooms side by the first pot of flowers.

He had just gotten out of the shower as he walked into the room with a towel on. He saw his best man and groomsman getting ready. He chuckled as he remembered the Bachelor Party. "You know you guys should get shot for what you guys did last night and if Seleen would have seen what you did, You would be dead." He was not exaggerating either.

All the guys and the employees were getting drinks upon drinks last night and all of them were telling him congratulations for the wedding that would happen the next day. It was about half way through when this woman came in wearing Geisha girl outfit. She asked who the special guy was and he just shook his head as he kept quite. It was his Best man Ryoma, and his Groomsman Xavier that pointed him out, before he could do anything Manny of all people brought a chair out and sat in the middle of the room. It was then that Manny told him to sit down and he just chuckled as he sat down in the chair with his drink in hand. "You guys are going to get it I swear." He chuckled at that. IT was then the music started to play.

He had remembered that night as the stripper started to give him a lap dance as well as she started to take off her cloths, the guys even the married ones started to holler as she removed her cloths. but all in all it was a nice bachelor party.


He chuckled as he remembered the night before. "Hey man it was a once in a lifetime thing. I mean hell you are 400 years old and it took this long to find someone." It was true He had known Shuda for over 200 years, an advantage of being an Elf. "And you can blame Xavier for the stripper." He put one his cloths making sure that everything was ready.

He just shook his head as Ryoma gave him the blame. "Hey I might have thought of the stripper but I was not the one that decided what she should wear. That was all you Ryoma." They all knew each other for about 100 years. Xavier was also an Elf but he knew Ryoma longer than he has known Shuda. He also get his cloths on before he looked over at Shuda. "The only thing I have to say about the stripper is that her boobs should have been bigger." Yes they could all say that Xavier is a boob man. "Hey man is that girl Tasha single?"

He finally got everything on before he looked back at his friends and chuckled. "It doesnt matter who got her and what she wore you guys are still in trouble" He laughed again as he looked at them. "Ryoma, I know that it has taken a long time for me to find someone. And now that I have I will not let her go. And Xavier about the boobs on the stripper needing to be bigger, I do not think so and also Tasha has a boyfriend, it was Ha'ruil they guy that was with her they stay together in the Inn." After doinga few more check ups with how they looked and how he looked he got himself ready. "Well guys it is time to go." And then he remembered the gifts, "Oh before I forget here are the presents for you guys." He walked over to a drawer and pulled out two boxes and handed one to Ryoma and then one to Xavier.

He opened up the box and looked as Shuda. "Aw you shouldn't have." With that he came over to Shuda with her arms open and started to make kissing noises.


He took the box and opened it when he heard Ryoma started to make the kissing noise. "Hey now let me get some as well as he opened up his arms and started to make the kissing noises as he walked over to Shuda.


"Ahh get away, dont you dare try and kiss me, I will burn you." He chuckled as he pushed the two of them away. "Alright now lets go." With that they all chuckled as they walked out the door.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Post by Eugene Fillabuster on Mon Oct 19, 2009 4:41 am

Eugene wasn't used to getting invitations to anything. So when a messenger knocked upon the door to his office he was caught off guard. He opened the door and found the scroll hanging from the handle. He took it and opened it only for it to make him smile. Wow, Shuda remembered him. And he also thought enough of him to invite him to the wedding? Looked like he was going to finally get to meet the infamous Seleen.

He went to his house out behind his office, the two were connected by his laboratory. He headed into his bedroom to check his closet. He didn't remember if he had a tux or not. He only saw a tux print shirt. He chuckled. "Nope, that will definitely not work." So he had to go shopping.

Where he lived finding a tux was a bit of a task. He didn't live in New Haven, and the only thing they had where he lived was a Farmers Market. But, he lucked out. Someone had made some tuxedos and had them at the Market, shirts, ties, the works. He was thrilled.

So the day of the wedding he got all dressed up in his tux and headed out. But then he remembered that they had moved and the wedding was at a different Inn. So he hired a carriage to take him. He got to the Inn and headed out to the waterfalls. He nearly got lost, but eventually he heard the sounds of running water. He loved the smell of the flowers as he got closer. He wondered what they were.

He had a guy with short blond hair, cut close, show him to a seat on the grooms side. There were so many beautiful women around, and it was like a crimson sea with all those red dresses. It was enough to put a smiled on any mans face. He slid his glasses back up and waited for the ceremony to begin.

Jimmy Ray hardly knew the couple tiein' the knot. But he'd met the bride in passin' a few times in the halls and whate'er. Mostly at the other Inn. He was honored that she 'membered him an' invited him. He din't have a tux in his bags, mostly 'cause he han't packed fer a trip. So he rode his horse int' town t' find him one.

He found himself some black jeans, an' a black hat. He picked himself up some black boots an' a jacket. Then he picked up a shirt an' tie an' vest. That's a tux in his eyes. So he headed back an' got ready fer a weddin'.



When it was time, he headed down t' the garden and o'er t' the falls. He asked the guys standin' 'round t' seat him somewhere in the back. He sat down were he'd been show t' and waited fer this shindig t' get underway.

He was sitting there in their room, Tasha had already left to go up with the other girls. He kept himself busy, doing this and that, He took a shower, got all cleaned up, he got out of the shower with a towel on. He made sure he got everything out on the bed before he got dressed. So first he put on the silk green boxers, then the green pants and the then shirt. The tie that came with the suit was just ugly even he made a face at it. So he put on the tie that he bought for it. Then came the vest then the blazer, after he put everything on he got the shoes on.

"There we go, now lets go"

He said to no one in particular. He walked out of their bedroom and locked the door behind and walked down the stairs. After he got down to the first floor he went out back and walked over to the water fall area. Once he got there he saw the other people being seated and people that are already sitting. He smiled when he saw Gwen and Manny and walked over to them. He found that that seat next to them was open and he sat down looking at them.

"Hey Gwen and Manny how are things going?"

He got out of bed remembering today was Seleen's and Shuda's wedding. There was not much for him to do. He made his suit appear and he put it on. making sure that everything was in order, his shoes, shirt, tie and suit, he walked out of guest room he was staying in. He disappeared and reappeared just outside the area for the wedding. He smiled as he saw everyone around, Love was in the air, yes it was corny but hey he is the god of love. He walked around for a few minutes saying hello to everyone before he saw his daughter. He smiled as he walked over to her, gave her a hug and then sat down next to her."And how are you doing Emilia?" He hasn't seen her in a couple of weeks so he was just wondering.

The sounds of music began to fill the air from seemingly nowhere at all. And all those fragrant Queen of the Night Orchids that Inion had brought were starting to bloom. The potted ones that were outlining the seats began first. So the scent was strong.

This was the cue for the men. It was time to begin. Jorge joined his wife Olivia and his three kids Noe, Gabriela, and Juan on the grooms side. Bo joined his wife Alyssa on the brides side. Derek and Jason joined Karen who was in the same row as Bo and Alyssa.

Andrew and Isah went to sit behind Maddie and Kyra respectively, their row was full because they had sat with Gawain, Airtia and Azlin. Shamus and Joseph sat behind Inion and her gaggle of fairies while Ivan sat with Casie and her kids, the kids between them.

Paul and William sat in the same row as Shamus and Joseph. Keven sat up front in the row where Kahn was. So everyone who was going to make it on time was there and seated. More people might come to the reception, but it was time for the wedding to begin.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Post by Priest on Fri Oct 23, 2009 10:59 am

Time for things to begin. He was dressed as he was on the walk over - didn't bring a change of clothes and didn't need too. Priest stood at the front, the book that had been on the rope under his robe now opened and in his hands. It was a beaten old leather thing, hand size. Holding it he looked out to the people and waited the processional. It was interesting to be on a floating platform out in the middle of the water but it's what they wanted. He had thought something dark, but hey, this is what made them happy.

Shuda came walking up behind the Priest with his Best man Ryoma and his Groomsman Xavier behind him. They walked over to the right side of the floating platform. Shuda was getting a little nervous with all this, but he knew that this was the right decision.

The air seemed to fill with music from out of nowhere. If everyone turned to look behind them, they would see Tasha coming down the isle. She was dressed in an Asian black and red dress and she carried a bouquet of one silk Queen of the Night Orchid with two red and two black rose buds. The stalks were wrapped in red and black silk. She slowly walked towards the bridge that lead to the platform. Once she crossed it she turned to go to the left where she turned to face the Priest. She smiled at Shuda and his Best Man who she had just met the night before. Then she smiled at his Groomsman as well, Xavier would be the one to escort her back out after the ceremony and who would be with her for the pictures.


The music continued as Venis made her way down the isle. She was also wearing and Asian dress, though slightly different than Tasha's.It was still red and black though. Her bouquet had three of the red and three of the black rose buds. Though it still had the one Queen of the Night Orchid and was still wrapped in the red and black silk. Venis was glad the flowers were silk, it would make it so that they could keep them as mementos forever. She crossed the bridge and went to the right as well. She turned around and took her place in front of Tasha. She checked her silk ribbons rather indiscreetly, Shuda's ring was still tied to it. She smiled at the men across from her before looking to the Priest.

Kahn was the next person they would see. And as he stood there, with his left arm out and bent at the elbow, the music that seemed to be coming from nowhere changed. It began to play the wedding march, which would be everyone’s cue to rise. He waited for Seleen to join him on his arm.

That was when Seleen came out in her beautiful white dress that Casie had made for her. It had a hint of red and a hint of black for the colors of the wedding and her shoes were black and red as well. She laced her arm through Kahn's and they started down the isle. Her bouquet had two of the Queen of the Night Orchids and three of each color of rose buds. With it all bundled together with the red and black silk ribbons it made for the perfect amount of color for her. They moved down the isle and crossed the bridge.


He waited and after the wedding party came down the aisle he raised his empty hand and spoke out to the congregation. "All rise" and the people were on their feet for when the bride came down escorted. The slow and casual pace allowed for everyone to take in the dress and he looked between the pair. Once the bride, groom, and the escort were at the front he motioned for the congregation to take their seats. "Welcome family, friends and loved ones. We gather here today to celebrate the wedding of Seleen Orinda DeChamp and Shuda Xenor Darkite." His voice carried well in his position. "You have come here to share in this formal commitment they make to one another, to offer your love and support to this union, and to allow Seleen and Shuda to start their married life together surrounded by the people dearest and most important to hem. So welcome to one and all, who have traveled from near and far. They thank you for your presence here today, and now ask for your encouragement, and lifelong support, for their decision to be married." as he spoke those words he looked out to the people, for it was more to them than to the couple before him. Now, he looked at the one who had escorted Seleen. "Who here gives the bride away?"

Kahn smiled softly before he spoke. "Her Sire Venis Jordianthan and myself, Kahn Jordianthan in place of her deceased parents." He felt so honored that Seleen had asked him to do something so important. But it had been a long time since his wedding and no one gave Venis away, so he wasn't quite sure if it was time to give Seleen's hand to Shuda yet or not. He figured he would wait for the Priest to tell him.

You understand that in giving her to this man you are relieving yourself from your duties as her guardian. You will no longer be first in her life or the authority figure over her. Do you relinquish her to the protect, security, guardianship and care of this man." Indicating Shuda, "And will now take a secondary role in the order of her life? If you agree say 'I do.' "

Kahn took a deep breath, he knew that this part would be the hard part. "I do." He smiled at Seleen and even kissed her cheek.

As Venis was the mother figure in Seleen's life and Kahn had remembered to mention that, she spoke as well. "I do." Her little girl was getting married, and she was a bit emotional about it.

"Give her to her intended. " that was the indication for Kahn to place Seleen's hand in Shuda's.

Kahn smiled again as he placed Seleen's hand in Shuda's. He didn't have to give Shuda the look or even whisper in his ear. Shuda had made her so happy for the last year, he knew that it wouldn't change now. Plus, Shuda knew that Kahn was the God of Ice and Death, emphasis on the death part. Kahn had no worries. Once he handed Seleen off to Shuda he went to sit down on the brides side. The first two seats on each side were left empty in honor of the two pairs of parents who couldn't be here. So he sat in the third seat in, in the front row. He carefully moved the tails of his Tuxedo before he sat down.

Once that was taken care of, Venis and Tasha moved into place closer to Seleen so that they formed a uniform line down the right side of the platform. Venis had been eating crackers while they got ready so her stomach was ok for now. Which was a good thing with all the extra emotions of the night.

He smiled as he saw her coming down the isle, and the emotions of love and endearment was flowing through him. He just kept looking at her until she came beside him. Then he listened to what the Priest had to say and he smiled even more. He then turned around to face his Future wife as Kahn places her hands into his. The flames in his eyes were going wild to show his emotions. "You look lovely Seleen."

"Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure of relationships." The Priest began to speak again. "No ceremony can create your marriage; only you can do that – through love and patience; through dedication and perseverance; through talking and listening, helping and supporting and believing in each other; through tenderness and laughter; through learning to forgive, learning to appreciate your differences, and by learning to make the important things matter, and to let go of the rest. What this ceremony can do is to witness and affirm the choice you make to stand together as life mates and partners." He switched his gaze between the pair before settling it in Seleen.

What this ceremony can do is to witness and affirm the choice you make to stand together as life mates and partners." He switched his gaze between the pair before settling it in Shuda. "Will you, Shuda, take this woman to be your wedded wife?"

Seleen returned the kiss Kahn gave her by placing one on his cheek, then she took Shuda's hand. She smiled and even blushed when he told her that she was lovely. "Thank you, you look very handsome Shuda." She was so happy. Her heart was beating on it's own and very fast.

He smiled at Seleen when she said he was handsome. "Thank you" He then looked over to the Priest and smiled as he nodded. "I do"

He gave a nod and looked to Seleen as he repeated the question. "Will you, Seleen, take this man to be your wedded husband?"

Seleen smiled and looked at the Priest. "I do." She was so thrilled to finally be getting to say those words.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Post by Priest on Fri Oct 23, 2009 11:00 am


The priest turned a page in his book and looked down at the words for a quick moment before looking back to the couple but more now to the congregation. " Two people in love do not live in isolation. Their love is a source of strength with which they may nourish not only each other but also the world around them. And in turn, we, their community of friends and family, have a responsibility to this couple. By our steadfast care, respect, and love, we can support their marriage and the new family they are creating today." Letting them know that if they were here they were to support. "We've come to the point of your ceremony where you're going to say your vows to one another. But before you do that, I ask you to remember that love – which is rooted in faith, trust, and acceptance - will be the foundation of an abiding and deepening relationship. No other ties are more tender, no other vows more sacred than those you now assume." This was the part where many couples never fully let sink in. "If you are able to keep the vows you take here today, not because of any religious or civic law, but out of a desire to love and be loved by another person fully, without limitation, then your life will have joy and the home you establish will be a place in which you both will find the direction of your growth, your freedom, and your responsibility." Looking again to Seleen. "Now Seleen, repeat after me. ‘I Seleen, take you, Shuda, to be my constant friend and partner, and my love. I will work to create a bond of honesty, respect, and trust; one that withstands the tides of time and change, and grows along with us." He'd wait.

Seleen looked at the Priest and nodded before she looked Shuda in the eyes. Then she repeated after the Priest. "I Seleen, take you Shuda, to be my constant friend and partner, and my love. I will work to create a bond of honesty, respect, and trust; one that withstands the tides of time and change, and grows along with us." She had already started down that path with Shuda when she shared her deepest and darkest secret with him.

He would still continue with her part. "I vow to honor and respect you for all that you are and will become, taking pride in who we are, both separately and together. I promise to challenge you, and to accept challenges from you. I will join with you and our community in an ongoing struggle to create a world we all want to live in, where love and friendship will be recognized and celebrated in all their many forms."

Still looking into Shuda's beautiful flame filled eyes she continued. "I vow to honor and respect you for all that you are and will become, taking pride in who we are, both separately and together. I promise to challenge you, and to accept challenges from you. I will join with you and our community in an ongoing struggle to create a world we all want to live in, where love and friendship will be recognized and celebrated in all their many forms." She thought that those were the most beautiful vows she had ever heard.

"Our home will be a sanctuary and a respite for us and for those whom we cherish. Above all, I will give you my love freely and unconditionally. I pledge this to you from the bottom of my heart, for all the days of our lives." Hopefully Shuda was paying attention for he was going to have to say these words next.

She wiped a blood tear from her eye with the back of her right hand before it could fall. "Our home will be a sanctuary and a respite for us and for those whom we cherish. Above all, I will give you my love freely and unconditionally. I pledge this to you from the bottom of my heart, for all the days of our lives." She smiled at the end as she gave his hand a gentle squeeze.

And now it was Shuda's turn so he turned to face him. "Shuda, repeat after me. "I Shuda, take you, Seleen, to be my constant friend and partner, and my love. I will work to create a bond of honesty, respect, and trust; one that withstands the tides of time and change, and grows along with us."

He just kept smiling through the whole deal as the Priest was telling Seleen what to say. He then squeezed her hand back when she squeezed his. it was then he looked back at the Priest and nodded then looked back as Seleen. "I Shuda, take you, Seleen to be by constant friend and partner, and my love. I will work to create a bond of honesty, respect, and trust; one that withstands the tides of time and change, and grows along with us."

"I vow to honor and respect you for all that you are and will become, taking pride in who we are, both separately and together. I promise to challenge you, and to accept challenges from you. I will join with you and our community in an ongoing struggle to create a world we all want to live in, where love and friendship will be recognized and celebrated in all their many forms." Often times the males had more trouble with the vows than the woman they were marrying but for now this guy seemed to be going strong.

"I vow to honor and respect you for all that you are and will become, taking pride in who we are, both separately and together. I promise to challenge you, and to accept challenges from you. I will join with you and out community in an ongoing struggle to create a world we all want to live in, where love and friendship will be recongized and celebrated in all their many forms." He just looked at Seleen and squeezed her hand again.

The priest found himself nodding. "Our home will be a sanctuary and a respite for us and for those whom we cherish. Above all, I will give you my love freely and unconditionally. I pledge this to you from the bottom of my heart, for all the days of our lives."

"Our home will be a sanctuary and a respite for us and for those whom we cherish. Above all, I will give you my love freely and unconditionally. I pledge this to you from the bottom of my heart, for all the days of out lives."

With the vows over he looked to the pair of them, hands spreading out. "Prepare the rings and take each others hands." Meaning they were to each hold each other’s hand while each having the others ring.

Venis reahed down and tugged softly at a silk ribbon and Shuda's ring fell gently into her hand. She passed the ring to Seleen and then took Seleen's bouquet to free up her other hand.


Seleen traded her bouquet for Shuda's ring. Then she returned her attention to Shuda. The rings weren't going to be blessed, that would be bad. It simply wouldn't do for her to die at her own wedding ceremony.

Ryoma smiled as he put his hand in his pocket to pull out the ring from it. He handed it over to Shuda and put his hand on his shoulder to give him a pat.

He smiled as he took the ring from Ryoma nodding to him before he turned back around and looked at Seleen.

"Shuda, place the ring on Seleen's finger and say ' I give you this ring, as a daily reminder of my love for you.’”

Her left hand was shaking slightly as she held it out with her fingers out straight and spread apart.

He looked over to the Priest again and nodded as he turned his head back to Seleen and smiled as he put the on her ring finger. "I give you this ring, as a daily reminder of my love for you."

“Now Seleen," Surely she knew what was coming. "Take Shuda's hand and place the ring on his finger and say 'I give you this ring, as a daily reminder of my love for you." "

He raised his hand spreading his fingers for her.

She held his left hand in hers as she used her right hand to slide the ring on the ring finger of his left hand. As she slid the ring she spoke. "I give you this ring as a daily reminder of my love for you." She smiled as the ring hit it's mark.

The priest smiled as he closed the book and held it down in front of him. "By the power of your love and commitment, and the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss each other." While they would commence in that he looked out to the crowd. "Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you Mr and Mrs Shuda Darkite."

She slid her arms around his neck and tilted her head as their lips touched and parted for a passionate kiss.

He smiled as he pulled her close putting his left arm around her as his flames started to engulf them both. His flames were extremely active as he kissed her in a deep and passionate kiss.

She wasn't at all worried about his flames, it was part of him and they were harmless to her. Besides, she was so very happy to be his wife, that she wouldn't have cared either way.

His flames died down as he removed his lips from hers putting his left hand into her right hand and turned towards everyone. "Thank you everyone." With that looked at Seleen and started to walk with her off the floating platform and onto the bridge.

Ryoma smiled as he waited until Shuda and Seleen were a few steps ahead before he started to walk over to Venis putting his arm around for her to hold. "Shall we?"

Seleen walked with Shuda back up the isle as they headed off to get their pictures taken. It had taken her forever to find a photographer who had the right kind of film for photographing vampires.

Venis laced her arm through Ryoma's arm and smiled. "Thank you." And she walked with him up the isle and away from the ceremony.

Xavier was next as he extended his arm to Tasha and he smiled at her. "It is our turn now."

She chuckled as she laced her arm through his. "That it is." And they headed up the isle and away as well. The next time any of them would see the guests would be up in the ballroom for the reception.

Iluvenis was trying to sit patiently beside her mother. She hoped the wedding would begin soon. Everything was so pretty, and she couldn't wait to see Miss Seleen in her dress.

It was then she heard a familiar voice sitting down on the other side of her mother. To her little hearts delight, she saw her grandfather. She leaned over her mother, and whispered.

"Hello Grandfather."

The girls whispered softly amongst themselves until Joseph and Shamus sat behind them. Inion and Fia gave them winks and everyone settled, knowing that things were about to start. They watched the prosession and then heard the wedding march, all stood, but for Inion instead of looking right away at Seleen she turned and looked at Shuda. She loved seeing the look on the grooms face as his bride to be first came into view, that look of pure love and joy. Shuda's look said it all, and as Seleen made her way up the aisle Inion turned to watch her. She truely was a hopeless romantic. Of course she was a beautiful bride and glowing with happiness. They all sat quietly at the ceremony conitnued. It was Fia who seemed to be the first to cheer the firey kiss. They all stood as the bridal party moved off to have thier photos done, Fia slipped Inion a tissue and gave her hand a squeeze, Inion wrapped her arm around Fia's waist and rested her head on her shoulder and recieved a kiss on the forhead. Yes tough Fia had her tender moments and her arm went around Inion's waist as they all waited for the guests to began to make thier way to the reception. In a way they were both waiting to be excorted by someone.

Ari and Shay of course waited behind them being cute and somewhat silly with Juliet in the middle of them. Juliet sighed and giggled, then gave a a wave to Jason.

Gwen had been talking to Manny when Ha'Ruil came and sat down with them she looked at him and smiled.

"May the stars shine on the hour of our meeting."

She gave him a traditional elvin greeting. She then turned back to Manny and continued the quiet conversation.

Manny looked at Gwen. She was absolutely beautiful tonight. He put an arm around her shoulder and kissed her lips softly. They were talking and smiling. It would not be long now.

Gwen was mid sentence when she stopped and then went completely white and then bright red. She got really tense and then relaxed. She gripped his hand tightly.

Manny was about to ask her what was wrong then he saw Eros. "What did he do last night?"Yes Manny had known that Eros was going to be the stripper the night before. He had even warned Gwedolan; she had been ok with it then.

Gwen turned even brighter red and leaned very close to Manny whispering in his ear. She hadn't wanted to tell him, but when he asked she had too. She would never lie to him.

Manny looked over to Eros as he sat down with Emilia and just kind of smiled. He didn't want her to see him smiling. His Angel really was completely innocent.

She leaned her head on his shoulder and was about to say something else when the priest came out. Shuda and his best man and groomsman were close behind him. The orchids began to bloom and the scent of them filled the area, it was so beautiful. Then the music started and Tasha and Venis came up the aisle. She smiled at them. This was all so different than an elvin wedding, it was a new experience for her.

When the music changed and Seleen came up the aisle the priest told everyone to stand. She stood with Manny and linked her arm through his. Seleen looked so beautiful. When she was standing up there everyone sat down. The ceremony was beautiful and she felt a tear slide down her face as she heard the vows. She leaned on Manny and listened closely. Everything they were saying was how she felt about the man sitting next to her.

Manny stood with everyone else. He held his Angel close through the whole ceremony. He had grown up calling Sel Auntie Seleen, but as he grew older and she never changed the relationship did. He now thought of her like a daughter. He got a bit misty eyed before the vows were done.

Then he had the woman sitting with him in his arms. When his wife died he had never thought he would find love again. Now he had an Angel, this beautiful woman, and the gods only knew why but she loved him as much as he loved her.


When the ceremony was concluded both Gwendolan and Manny stood and clapped for the happy couple. Gwen had to smile as they were both enshrouded with flames as Shuda kissed Seleen. After everyone was down the isle they waited their turn to head to the reception.

Emilia was enjoying herself talking to her daughter. She always enjoyed the time they got together. They were laughing and playing games.

Her father always the last to arrive, she was surprised he wasn't late. She kissed his cheek.

"Hello father. I hope you forgive me for leaving when you first popped in last night."

She whispered in his ear so Iluvenis would not hear.

Seeing my father naked is not my idea of a good time. Now that I think of it maybe I should have taken my mother with me."

She laughed and then smiled as her daughter leaned across her to say hello.

The ceremony soon started, it was beautiful but it didn't leave her sentimental and emotional. She was happy that they had found each other.

When it was over she scooped her daughter up and headed for the reception.

Hearing the music Kyra stopped looking around at the way the place was decorated and all of the people that showed up. A little disappointed about something but she kept a good game face and smiled her way through it. She watched the ceremony quietly with a smile. Following the lead of others Kyra stood and clapped for the happy bride and groom. She looked over to Maddie and whispered to her.

"Does this mean we get to have some fun tonight?" A sly grin crossing her lips. She was sure Maddie would know what she meant.

The twins were perfectly behaved through the whole ceremony. Nat was watching with a smile on her face and a dreamy look in her eyes. DJ just kind of sat there. He was probably wishing he were someplace else.

Cas was having a hard time, no matter how hard she tried to convince herself that she was meant to be alone and would never find love; she couldn't help but feel lonely.

She watched the ceremony as silent tears fell. They were mixed with feelings of joy and sadness. She watched and clapped with a smile on her face but it never reached her eyes.

When the ceremony was over Ivan came to her to escort her to the reception. She smiled at him and reached into the inside pocket of his tux and pulled out the handkerchief she knew would be there.

She wiped her eyes and put it back in the pocket. She knew that he would know what was wrong, they had talked about it in the past. She had a feeling that he would keep her company for the evening knowing that leaving her alone tonight would be bad.

"Thank you Ivan."

When Ivan came around to Cas he looked at her and frowned. He had not looked at her during the ceremony and had not known she was crying. When she took his handkerchief from his pocket all he really wanted to do was wrap his arms around her and tell her things were going to be ok. He didn't though, she was still a Lady and he was just staff. He knew she would never see it that way it was his hang up.

He took her arm and whispered in her ear. "Emilia promised me the first dance, after that, I'm all yours." He was not going to let her be alone, she needed to keep her mind off of certain things tonight. He put his hand over hers and led the way to the reception.


DJ took Nat's arm. They followed their mother and Ivan to the reception.

As soon as Cas stood Kjay was right beside her. She was unhappy and he didn't know why. He and all the other animals followed Cas, Ivan, and the twins to the reception.

The men were all watching the procession of the wedding party with smiled and quiet admiration for how lovely their boss and Tash looked. And they did as they were instructed to do by the Priest and rose to admire the bride come down the isle with Kahn. Seleen was so lovely, her gown was perfect for her. They all watched then sat down.

None of the men were getting particularly mushy about the ceremony, save for Manny of course. So he was very cuddled up with Gwendolan. But the other men just watched. Bo and Alyssa cuddled up to, but that was because Alyssa was getting teary eyed. After all, they had barely been married a few months. Jorge held Olivia's hand.

Derek put his arm around Karen because she was getting a little watery eyed as well, but the other men were just watching. Most of them were sitting behind the women they liked to spend time with or were dating, but a few of them, like Andrew and Isah, reached between the chairs in front of them to reach for the hands of their favorite girls.

Once the wedding ceremony was over they all stood and applauded the newlyweds. And as the wedding party headed over to get their pictures done, it was time for the guests to head inside and up to the ball room. Venis had this thing about women being escorted, so Keven headed back to Danni, though they'd never met, and offered his arm.

Isah offered his arm to Kyra, and Andrew to Maddie. Joseph offered to walk Fia up and Shamus held out an arm for Inion. William offered his arm to Shay, and Paul his to Aryanna. Jason kissed his mothers cheek before he headed over to Juliet. Couldn't let her head up alone either. Ivan was at Casie's side rather quickly as well. So many women.

The men walked with the rest of the guests up to the Inn. Some of the men, mostly the ones with families, took the stairs, others took the elevator. But eventually they all made it up to the second floor ball room. It was time to have fun, because tomorrow most of the employees would head outside to clean up after the wedding ceremony.

((Feel free to continue making your exit posts, react to the ceremony, reply to an employee if you want, whatever. But I am opening the other thread now. Have fun))

Madeline was wiping the happy tears from her eyes, as she and Andrew walked out. The ceremony was beautiful. She hoped one day, hers would be as such. During the ceremony, she started thinking of her beloved Jono. She missed him so much, even with his soul in her. But time heels all wounds and it was time to move on.

She looked at Andrew with a warm smile. "If I forget to say it, I've had the time of my life tonight. Thank You."

Andrew smiled at her then kissed her on the cheek, and told her the night was still young. Then they made there way to the reception.

Inion and Fia seperated at the sametime and took the offered arms of Joseph and Shamus. Inion smiled brightly her eyes filled with the happiness of the moment as her and Shamus took the lead of the little group. Fia winked at Joseph and followed behind Inion and Shamus. Shayla and Aryanna were actually surprised when William and Paul appeared at thier sides, they were not expecting to be escorted. They waited till Jason was there for Juliet before taken the offered arms of the gentlemen givening them bright smiles. Juliet was glad that Jason was escorted her and gave him a happy smile and leaned into him for a moment before they followed everyone else.

Kyra stayed standing as the happy couple made their way back down the isle. Seeing others starting to leave to go to the reception Kyra followed Maddie's lead and took Isah's arm and gave a soft smile up to him as she let him lead the way to the reception.

Re: The sacred nuptials of Shuda and Seleen

Circus weddings were so different.

Ailylaeli had only ever attended a circus wedding before. She was too young when she was taken from her home to have any memories of elf ceremonies. And the people who raised her were already married. Any weddings they may taken her to before she became the maid, she wouldn't have remembered either.

But Ail sat there watching the wedding in quiet awe. She had stood up when everyone else had, sat down when everyone else had, and been very quiet as the ceremony progressed. She loosened her grip slightly at some point, but she remained holding Cad's arm in a tight hug. She was nervous around people.

It was such a beautiful ceremony.

She loved the way that the couple looked at each other as they said their vows. They looked like they never wanted to be with anyone else for the rest of their lives. If she remembered correctly, Seleen was a vampire and Shuda was immortal. According to Cad anyway, so the rest of their lives was a long time.

When the ceremony was over everyone stood again. So Ail stood again. She watched the wedding party go back up the isle arm in arm like three couples. Though she knew that the guys from Shuda's side weren't with the women from Seleen's side, so she would ask Cad about that, and some other things, later.

She had so many questions to ask him.

After the wedding party left to go off somewhere, people started to filter out of the seating area. She stayed with Cad. She would go with him wherever they were supposed to go. She smiled at all the people, especially the two elves she saw. The two guys with Shuda were elves too, right? She could learn a lot around here.

Everyone seemed to be heading up to the Inn. She and Cad were as well. At circus weddings, there was a party afterwards. She thought that that was where they were going. But it didn't hurt to ask, right? "Are we headed to an after party?" She smiled up at Cad as she asked. She was embarrassed about not knowing.

And into the Inn was exactly where they went.

Cad walked with her on his arm over to a big box in the wall. The wall opened to reveal the box and they stepped inside with other guests. The wall closed locking them inside. She gripped Cad's arm a little tighter. Then the was a slight jolt and the box moved. Her grip tightened even more as the box started going upwards.

There was another slight jolt as the box stopped. There was a ding when the wall opened again. There had been one before, but she hadn't really noticed. As they stepped out of the box in the wall she noticed that they were somewhere else. The magic moving box had transported them to somewhere else in the Inn.

So was this where the after party was?

Danni watched the ceremony quietly, a couple of tears rolling down her face throughout. It was very beautiful. She was so happy that she got to see her best friend get married. She couldn't wait til the reception so she could see Sel and tell her how happy she was for her.

When the ceremony was over everyone stood and then started to filter out of the seats. Danni hadn't gone three steps when there was a man there offering her his arm. She smiled. "Thank you." And she laced her arm through his. "I forgot my gift in my car, do you mind if we go out and get it before we head in to the reception?" She was rather embarrassed that she had forgotten it.

The man was rather polite about it though, he walked with her out to her car, and even offered to carry the gift for her. She smiled as she let him carry the box. They headed from her car to the Inn where they took the elevator up to the ballroom for the reception.
